Giant Redwood Tree no. 3 - September 2006
Almost twenty or so Giant Redwoods can be found in a few square miles around Broomfield, north of Chelmsford. There are three of these trees at the Early Years and Childcare Resource Centre, Broomfield Place in Main Road. The first picture was taken on a misty Spring morning and the eerie atmosphere created by the mist enhances the prehistoric feel of these magnificent beasts. The second picture shows the same vista on a late Summer afternoon. The tree in the last picture, although planted a little close to one of the older trees, is a very fine example of a very young Wellingtonia with a classic conical shape.
